Freedom Ride

I count cars to be the biggest fascination during my childhood days. My almirah used to be filled with toy cars of all possible sort, color and design. The collection grew day after day and so the pride of it's owner. Hours and days would pass staring at the minute details but not my curiosity and interest in them. Everyone already knew how to please me - by gifting yet another toy car. As I grew up, I explored more cars, the real ones. Their functioning, design, features and the technology used. It would be not wrong to say that I had started seeing my dream career to be an automobile engineer.

It's lately that I have been looking for a car to finally buy for myself. When one has a deep knowledge about 'to be bought' product it becomes quite difficult to make a choice. I went through hundreds of car brands and their models but the only car which caught my attention was Datsun redi-GO from the very reliable- Nissan. In this write-up I will share the best three features of Datsun redi-GO which are surely going to overwhelm and amaze you.

  • Modern outside and Classy inside: It's quite rare to find the duo as it is stylish and sporty at the same time. The outlook has been given a touch of silver which makes it look sophisticated. The smooth and dynamic side character lines are sure to take away your heart. It has distinct high stance which helps you to have a wider view of the road while driving. It has 'ground clearance' which means it would help to overcome the little obstacle like uneven road and little objects on the street. It has projector headlamps and tail lamp which turns itself as you per you drive. Isn't that amazing? Being a family person and a passionate traveler it is my deepest concern to adjust all the members along with the luggage. Luckily Datsun redi-GO has a spacious interior which can accommodate up to five people. It has a stylish dash layout with digital tachometer. A long drive without music? Hard to imagine! The audio system has all in one- radio, CD, MP3, USB, Aux-in.  
  • Drives you into a comfort zone: The five speed manual transmission is smooth to handle and precise enough to shift the gear. It has a sensitive air conditioning which makes sure that air flows equally to the passengers sitting on the rear  seats. Apart from that it has a drive computer which displays essentials like average mileage and fuel remaining. The shift indicator helps in guiding the ideal time to shift.  
  • A smart performance: It is quite efficient and economic when it comes to fuel. It has an engine of 799cc at the economy of 25.17 Km/L. It has a special I-SAT engine which sparks in response to the quality of the fuel. There are times when we have to put a break all of a sudden. Datsun ready-GO has shortest braking distance which surely in coping with urban driving blues. It has a dexterity of crash protection shell.
Can't wait for a test drive on smooth, tidy and broad roads of Chandigarh to experience the comfort, efficient performance and its take my heart away look.

In my dreams

Dreams are something I have started believing in lately. Each night there is a new dream, some believable, some unbelievable, some scary and some inspiring as well. It's like a reel which starts involuntarily, induced somewhere from the unconscious state of mind. I shared my dreams with a few friends and it was quite interesting to know their dreams, in return. A good friend of mine who believes that ''Dreams are gates to territories that are not explored'' suggested me to start a journal in order to keep a record. I did so and it's satisfying to fill page after page. The most interesting one which I had seen recently had a message. A quote!  ''Books are not divergent because they flirt with each other''  
Make sense?

It's been a long time since I composed a poem. Here's a try of shaping a dream into a poetry.

She closed her eyes 
to open the lock tonight
of another dream door
which awaits her to cite
an unseen story, foretold 

She steps into a bookstore
with a little pocket money
and a bundle of hope 
''The Secret'' at a cheap price 
She moves around in rejoice 
Of having a ''wanted'' book

The realm of dream breaks...

As she wakes up; euphoric 
slowly, realizing the gist 
It tempts her to unfold
the landscapes covered in mist
She goes through online stores
and other bookstores in vicinity 

It seems destiny has a way 
with its believers...
A friend of her gifts her, the book
As if she read her mind and;
heard her wish.
Dreams do come true
They have You.

Dry grass

Eager birds chirrup biding a goodbye
As setting of the sun embarks
At the horizon meets the sky and the earth
It all seem so serene and stark

Walls painted in rattan beize
decorated with frames and oil paintings
A blue palazzo pant and a red top lies on her bed
with a watch, hand bag and big earrings

She sits there, just before a window
Relentlessly, looking outside
And suddenly the rooster clock buzz, frenzy
  She realize it has been days since she cried

Tears trickle down her cheeks 
For she know, another day is about to pass
and the fate will guzzle her with woes
life sans love and friendship is a dry grass

Interview: Olivier Lafont


Simran: Firstly, congratulations on the grand success of your book ‘’Sweet Revenge’’. Tell us a little about yourself.
Olivier Lafont: Thank you! As for me, I’m a French author and actor. I consider myself a storyteller first and foremost, and acting and writing as different facets of that. I’ve loved stories from as far back as I can remember, reading and watching them, writing them. That’s been the most constant impulse of my life. I talk about my life and passion in terms of constancy because I’ve lived in several different countries, and experienced different cultures up close. So I write from an inherently multicultural experience, and it’s been quite interesting forming my own identity and individual culture and translating that into my stories.

Simran: We know that you are one awesome writer. Tell us about your book Sweet Revenge, what it means to you, and how did you conceive the idea ? How long did it take to write this book?
Olivier Lafont: Thanks again! ‘Sweet Revenge’ is a contemporary romance novel, a classic story of lovers torn apart and brought back together by destiny years later. I actually wrote the book as a bit of a lark, for my wife. So it has that ‘sentimental’ value, as something I did for her. It was a really interesting experience as well, writing with that form and structure. I always like having some romance in the books I write, but having the entire book focused on romance was an interesting experiment. Making the hero French was clearly inspired by my own origin, and the American aspects were inspired by my American influences. All told the book must have taken about a month to write.

Simran: What was your learning from writing your book?
Olivier Lafont: That romance is quite fun to write!

Simran: When do you write the most? Is there a favorite place at your home or office where you write the most? Any props that you feel lucky to keep with you when writing?
Olivier Lafont: When I’m in a writing phase I try to be consistent with my writing sessions. I usually write in the day. I have created a completely comfortable environment in my house, one where everything I need is immediately at hand so that there are minimum distractions. I don’t believe in lucky charms, but I like having my wife in the room somewhere, so maybe she is my lucky charm.

Simran: We would be happy to know about any future projects that you are currently working on?”
Olivier Lafont: I’m giving some thought to a sequel for ‘Warrior’. I also have a new Young Adult novel for which I’m looking for the right publisher.
